Snyder Estimator, Dave Myers, (from our Gig Harbor location) spent Saturday, April 12th at the Rotary Auction and Garage Sale (RAGS) at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds. Four Rotary clubs (Bremerton, East Bremerton, South Kitsap and Silverdale) participated in the highly anticipated event that took volunteers an entire week, just to set up.
Early Saturday morning, the National Anthem was played over the loudspeaker and the doors were opened to a mad rush of shoppers. Items being sold included computers, televisions, sporting goods, tools, building materials, exercise equipment, dishes, artwork, furniture, books, clothes, and much more. A silent auction was also held.
“This is an annual event that many sailors and citizens of the West Sound look forward to all year,” said Myers. “I am so grateful for Snyder’s sponsorship.” Saturday marked the event’s 17th consecutive year. Revenue from the sale was split between the clubs and will eventually be distributed back to the community.
